Our fantastic MP, Alok Sharma has received a Knighthood in the 2023 New Years Honours List, for his work as the President for COP26. Speaking about his honour, Alok said:
“I am truly humbled to receive this honour.
“Delivering the COP26 conference and getting almost 200 countries to agree the Glasgow Climate Pact were collectively a great UK team effort, supported by many of our dedicated civil servants and diplomats around the world.
“However, if we are to keep alive the prospect of limiting average global warming to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels, which will help to avert the worst impacts of climate change, all countries need to redouble efforts to meet their climate commitments.”
Congratulations on your well deserved honour Sir Alok!
